The unfortunate part for Mpumalanga Province is that it doesn’t have any representation in the Top Seven. This is after former Deputy President, David Mabuza declined nomination for the position. Another local lad, Ronald Lamola, also failed to make the cut for the position that was clinched by Paul Mashatile.

Mpumalanga also didn’t have a contender for the National Chairperson, won by Gwede Mantashe. Also, no contender for the Secretary-General position won by Fikile Mbalula. First and second Deputy Secretary General won by Nomvula Mokonyane and Maropene Ramokgopa. Lastly, the province had no contender for the Treasurer-General won by Gwen Ramokgopa.
